The Key Manager window appears. Click on the newly created key using the secondary mouse button. A context menu will appear. Position the mouse over the 'Send to Keyserver' submenu, and then click on 'http://subkeys.pgp.net'.

A verification window appears, asking if you really want to send the key. Click Yes.

If it fails with 'cannot connect', don't worry. The fact is that subkeys.pgp.net are many servers. You will get a different one on each attempt.

If it keeps failing, then we should add a new Keyserver. Open the Key Manager. From the main menu bar, click on "Keyserver". A small dialog appears.

Click with the secondary mouse button on the white area. A menu should appear (if it does not, click on a different region just in case).

Click 'Add'. Make sure TYPE equals 'HKP'. In the host name, input "hkp://keys.gnupg.net". Leave port unchanged. Click 'Add'. It should now appear on the keyserver list. Set it

as default, then Close the window.

Repeat the 'Send to Keyserver' procedure, but choose hkp://keys.gnupg.net (first choice if you made it Default). MAKE SURE it reads 'hkp://keys.gnupg.net'

and NOT 'http://keys.gnupg.net'. A dialog stating 'Key was successfully sent' should appear.

Now, let's install Enigform.t

Enigform for Windows:

Open up Firefox.

Visit this page: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4531

Click 'Add to Firefox' (the green button in the middle of the page).

A dialog will appear. The 'Install Now' button will become available in 5 seconds. Click it when it is.

Now click 'Restart Firefox'.

The Key Manager window appears. First, we must add a new Keyserver:

  1. In the Key Manager, from the main menu bar, click on "Keyserver". A small dialog appears.
  2. Click with the secondary mouse button on the white area. A menu should appear (if it does not, click on a different region just in case).
  3. Click 'Add'. Make sure TYPE equals 'HKP'. In the host name, input "hkp://keys.gnupg.net". Leave port unchanged. Click 'Add'.

It should now appear on the keyserver list. Set it as default, then Close the window.

Now we will send your new public key to a keyserver:

  1. Click on the newly created key using the secondary mouse button. A context menu will appear.
  2. From the 'Send to Keyserver' submenu, click on 'hkp://keys.gnupg.net'.
  3. A verification window appears, asking if you really want to send the key. Click Yes.
  4. A dialog stating 'Key was successfully sent' should appear.

A new dialog asking you to Backup your keyrings will appear. This is up to you, but I recommend you click Yes and follow the instructions. Make sure that backup is not accesible by a 3rd party, and store two copies of it. One near you, another in a safe location elsewhere.

Now, we need to send the new Public key of your keypair to a keyserver.

In the Tray, you'll notice a new icon. Hover the mouse over it, until you can identify the 'Windows Privacy Tray'. Double click it.

The Key Manager window appears. Click on the newly created key using the secondary mouse button. A context menu will appear. Position the mouse over the 'Send to Keyserver' submenu, and then click on 'http://subkeys.pgp.net'.

A verification window appears, asking if you really want to send the key. Click Yes.

If it fails with 'cannot connect', don't worry. The fact is that subkeys.pgp.net are many servers. You will get a different one on each attempt.

If it keeps failing, then we should add a new Keyserver. Open the Key Manager. From the main menu bar, click on "Keyserver". A small dialog appears.

Click with the secondary mouse button on the white area. A menu should appear (if it does not, click on a different region just in case).

Click 'Add'. Make sure TYPE equals 'HKP'. In the host name, input "hkp://keys.gnupg.net". Leave port unchanged. Click 'Add'. It should now appear on the keyserver list. Set it

as default, then Close the window.

Repeat the 'Send to Keyserver' procedure, but choose hkp://keys.gnupg.net (first choice if you made it Default). MAKE SURE it reads 'hkp://keys.gnupg.net'

and NOT 'http://keys.gnupg.net'. A dialog stating 'Key was successfully sent' should appear.

Now, let's install Enigform.t

Enigform for Windows:

Open up Firefox.

Visit this page: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4531

Click 'Add to Firefox' (the green button in the middle of the page).

A dialog will appear. The 'Install Now' button will become available in 5 seconds. Click it when it is.

Now click 'Restart Firefox'.

When Firefox comes back up, a dialog will let you know Enigform has been installed. Dismiss it.

Now, to test Enigform, proceed to visit http://maotest.buanzo.org

Click on the last link, 'Click Here to Login'. Your passphrase will be asked. You might wish to click 'Do not ask again'.

On windows, there doesn't seem to be a GPG Agent available. Sorry.

After you input your passphrase, a secure sesion will be attempted. A dialog saying that the server does not recognize your public key will appear. This is OK.

The resulting page will attempt to import your key from keys.gnupg.net. Refresh (CTRL+R) a few times, until this block of text appears on the page:

gpg: requesting key xxxxxxxxxxxx from hkp server keys.gnupg.net

gpg: key xxxxxxxxx: public key "xxxxxx" imported

gpg: Total number processed: 1

gpg: imported: 1

Now, go back to http://maotest.buanzo.org. Again, click on the last link, 'Click Here to Login'. This time, the server will recognize your public key,

and welcome you to the site. (Welcome back, YOUR_REAL_NAME! - We missed you!) Congratulations, Enigform is working for you.
